Nāvamanyeta karhicit: Never become disobedient to ācārya
Lecture on SB 6.3.16-17 -- Gorakhpur, February 10, 1971: There is another version that Krsna says... These are stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam while He was talking with Uddhava, Eleventh Canto. Just like Krsna had talks with Arjuna, which is known as Arjuna-gita, similarly, He had talks with Uddhava, another devotee. That is known as Uddhava-gita. So in that Uddhava-gita these statements are there, that acaryam mam vijaniyat navamanyeta karhicit: "Acarya should be known as good as God." That is confirmed in Visvanatha Cakravarti... Saksad dharitvena samasta-sastraih. He also refers to the sastra, not that he is opining by his own intellect. No. That is the speciality of learned scholars and devotees. They should immediately give evidence from the sastra. Visvanatha Cakravarti said that "Guru is as good as God by the verdict of the sastra." Saksad dharitvena samasta-sastraih. And Krsna says, acaryam mam vijaniyat: "Acarya should be known as good as Myself." Navamanyeta karhicit: "Never become disobedient to acarya." Na martya buddhyasuyeta: "Never be envious of the acarya, considering him to be an ordinary person." Navamanyeta karhicit. Sarva-deva-mayo. By worshiping acarya... And Bhagavad-gita it is said, acaryopasanam. Tad viddhi pranipatena pariprasnena sevaya [Bg. 4.34]. These things are there.
